Park­ing man­age­ment

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

AN UP­DATE on park­ing man­age­ment across the bor­ough was re­quested by Peter Must, the chair of Wok­ing­ham So­ci­ety, at a meet­ing of Wok­ing­ham Bor­ough Coun­cil held vir­tu­ally on Mon­day, July 6.

He said that a June 2019 re­port was ap­proved by the coun­cil’s Com­mu­nity and Cor­po­rate Over­view and Scru­tiny Com­mit­tee. It asked that town and parish coun­cils be con­sulted and that mem­bers have a say .

He asked: “Can the ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for high­ways and trans­port say­what has been done since then to progress the prepa­ra­tion of a draft Ac­tion Plan with a view to it be­ing sub­mit­ted to the Ex­ec­u­tive and then put out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion?”

Cllr Pauline Jor­gensen said that the con­sul­ta­tion took place be­tween

June and De­cem­ber last year, but look­ing over the sub­mis­sions has been de­layed by the coro­n­avirus.

“The re­view of con­sul­ta­tion re­sponses has recom­menced and work to re­vise the Ac­tion Plan is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of this month for con­sid­er­a­tion by the Ex­ec­u­tive for High­ways and Trans­port,” she said.
